Urbana snow removal requirement starts 5 p.m. Thurs.
URBANA -- Make sure you have the snow scooped off your sidewalks if you live in Urbana.
The city's sidewalk snow and ice removal requirement will be in effect, starting at 5:00 p.m. Thursday. That means if you live or own a business in the Downtown, University, or South Philo Road snow removal districts, you have to have public sidewalks cleared by 5:00 p.m. on Friday.
Any public sidewalks in these districts which are not in compliance by 5:00 p.m. Friday, could be cleared by the City of Urbana, then you'll be sent the bill plus additional fees.
For a map of the snow removal districts, and other information on the snow removal ordinance, go to the City of Urbana website or contact the Urbana Public Works Department at (217) 384-2342.
